Applications for SobiPro

More about the various applications for SobiPro

Last updated: 26. October 2020

We do not include all functionality we offer for SobiPro into SobiPro core. This is a big advantage as you do not get overwhelmed by functions you do not need. Also the core package is more light by doing so. This additional functionality is provided to you by so called applications. The applications integrate themselves into SobiPro as they would be part of it.
Applications will be distinguished by the application type.

The following application types are available:

  • application: an application of type application is an add-on for SobiPro which enhances SobiPro with a new functionality. For those of you who know our former component Sobi2, these type of applications was called a Sobi2-Plugin. We do not longer use the term plugin to avoid confusion with Joomla! plugins.
    SobiPro applications can be either enabled per-section or are globally available for all sections.
  • field: an application of type field extends the list of available field types for custom fields. Once installed they are available for all sections.
  • payment: an application of type payment adds an additional payment gateway to SobiPro.
  • template: as a template package may contain functionality, it is also treated as an application. Most template package installers add also a section with pre-installed fields and configuration to your SobiPro.
  • language: a language package contains the language files for another language for SobiPro core. Language files for applications are always part of the corresponding application.
  • module: module applications are standard Joomla! modules for SobiPro.
  • plugin: plugin applications are standard Joomla! plugins for SobiPro.

There are several applications available for SobiPro. The number of applications is growing constantly. Not all applications are available for free. Some of them need a specific club membership (subscription).
